Got breakaway collars and ID for the gang

I've never bothered b/c the odds of them getting out AND not getting hit by a car AND someone else caring enough to look at their tags and call us seems quite small to me...But still. So did it today. The tags are printed with their name, our number, and "Reward." They're adjusting pretty well to the collars.

Xander:




Frodo:



Lemur:



Daisy, scary as ever:

My kitties are getting IDs for xmas I hope. With as much as my Oreo attempts to escape, it'd be a good idea!

i think every cat shouldnt be without a collar, if they do every get out for someone who finds your cat, its an instant thing to say "im owned by someone" even tho there is microchips ppl dont always think about that if they consider taking it in....
although there are always going to be the people who see a cat, take a fancy to it and take it

Kristi, your cats look so cute with their collars!!
I wish Velvet would wear a collar. We bought her one and have tried it several times over the years. She goes absolutely nuts trying to get it off and I am always afraid she will harm herself. She is strictly indoors and no longer makes any effort to get out. So I figure the risk of her getting out isn't worth stressing her out with the collar.

i just got my new tag for cujo today! all it says is: cujo, i have a microchip. i move so often it wouldn't make sense to put our address or number on it. but i can keep the microchip updated! now, hopefully, if he gets out and someone is kind enough to look at his tag, they will know about microchips!

Hey, thanks, Tanyuh! He does look so much better now (less Frankenstein-y) since his hair has started growing in. He bunny-hops around happily enough...

Very nice!

I kinda think cats look even better with collars on.

Well, Xanny got his collar in his mouth and got stuck and it wouldn't breakaway like it's supposed to. I guess b/c he's not big and strong enough? Or I guess b/c it got over his mouth and once inside didn't have enough pressure to break the clasp? Well, we got it off him and I will wait until he's a little bigger to put it back on. It was already as tight as it would adjust. Sigh. I hate to think of him getting stuck like that one day when we're not here.
